Overview

Experiencing Reading and Writing integrates both diversity of material with sound theory using an inductive, cognitive/rhetorical model that links reading and writing in an informed way. This text singularly focuses upon the college reader and the writer. Its primary objective is to create lifelong learners who can understand without recrimination what their difficulties have been and how they can now read and write much more fluently than ever before.

Experiencing Reading and Writing will enable students to:

  • Identify the main idea and supporting paragraphs in expository writing
  • Perceive how our five senses contribute to the writing and reading of spatial description
  • Distinguish the emotional response appropriate to narrative from the intellectual response appropriate to exposition
  • Judge the validity of argument and ascertain the power of persuasion
  • Understand how writing relates to reading
  • And More!

Experiencing Reading and Writing features:

  • Cognitive and affective learning strategies
  • Dozens of culturally diverse readings across the disciplines
  • Study questions, writing assignments and quizzes for each reading
  • Films and eConnections related to each reading
  • Clearly written introductions to each chapter and subtopic
  • Graphic illustrations
  • Collaborative projects to accompany each chapter
